Everyday Sourdough: Tortillas


These Sourdough tortillas are the best I’ve tasted. I have to admit to making them with lard, but I know not everyone is as big a fan as I am of that particular fat, so any oil works well here.

Makes 15 large tortillas


420g strong white flour

2tsp bicarb

20g oil

200g starter

220g water


  1. Mix the flour, bicarb and salt in a bowl.

  2. Add the oil and mix through.

  3. Mix starter and water into the flour mix.

  4. Mix well and rest for 15 minutes.

  5. Knead the dough until it is springy and soft. About 5 minutes.

  6. Cut dough into 15 equal pieces. Roll out the tortillas until they are about 10 inches across.

  7. Heat a frying pan on the stove.

  8. Dry fry the tortillas for 2-3 minutes, until they puff up. Flip and fry the other side.

  9. Cover with a towel until you are ready to serve.
